Share It Saturday: Valentine Sensory Items and Boxes and Share Linky

This year I set out to make at least one new learning activity each week for either Toddler Veg or Preschool Veg. This week we created Valentine Sensory boxes. I do plan to make more themed boxes as well! The kids played with this for 1 hour and 45 minutes joke, I had to cut them off and they beg each day to play with it. Who knew? I call that a success! I used a plastic container with a lid and filled it about half way with clean rice and put some Valentine themed items in it. The boys loved it. They talked about colors, shapes, sizes and textures. They were in love with the hearts that opened and they could use them as scoops!

If you are interested in having a sensory box or sensory items of your own you can get them right here from Veg Mamma!  You can visit Mamma's Shop on Etsy, by clicking HERE. 

If you already have a sensory bin and rice you can buy the items to put into your bin.  That saves you time and money driving from store to store to find so many different Valentine themed objects.  The Valentine themed items are $9 shipped and you can get them by clicking HERE to get to our Etsy shop or you can click the Mamma's shop tab at the top of this blog and get the item directly from the blog shop.
 Here is my full package; it includes, bin, lid, rice and Valentine themed items.  It is 24.95 shipped.  The rice makes it a bit heavy so the shipping goes up. 

** Colors, Shapes and Sizes may vary slightly from set to set. 

**If you are on Etsy we'd love it if you become one of our admirers or add us to your circle!

What have you been up to this week?  I'd love to hear about it!  LINK UP below in the Share it Saturday Linky!
